Because it's an easy option and a highly realistic option, it would expedite the process. Russia wouldn't be the first to employ nuclear weapons against a non nuclear state. And just like the Japanese future Ukrainians would grow to love and worship their new master, after getting fissioned and fused. Ding ding.
A highly realistic option? Nuclear war? How insane are you Igor? You better take some anti-psychotics. Anyone who actually deploys a nuclear bomb against either NATO or Russia is asking for the end of the world. WWII ended with the US dropping two atom bombs on Japan.
Japan doesn't forget what happened. It learned to never go for some cheap fascist fantasy of invading China, and other countries in Asia who STILL hate their guts to this very day. How Japan got out of its defeat has to do with the enormous sacrifices the WWII civilian Japanese population had to do for a long time.
The US government has spent a lot on foreign wars precisely because they think war is worth it. It never is.
This is not 1945 Igor. The Nukes have evolved. You throw a couple on either UK or Germany or Poland or Finland or Ukraine? Not only will it cause mass death in Ukraine it will cause mass death in Russia too. The radiation is not thousands of miles away on the other side of the Pacific as was the case for the US case of WWII against Japan.
Putin is delusional like Hitler was. He should reassess and stop the aggression. That he will? I doubt it. He is not worried about his image. He wants raw power and control of more land. He is not going to get it. Not the way he thinks he could get it. The best possible thing that fascist fuck you back can do? Is negotiate with Zelensky and paid him and his government some money so Russia has access to some port cities and the Donbas. Otherwise, it is guerrilla warfare with the Ukrainians for decades to come and Russia will become increasingly unstable and he being the old KGB stress man pendejo he is will wind up dying of some cardiac arrest and the next leader will fill the vacuum and will have to do some cleanup diplomacy to even have a semblance of control of all those loosely held ports.
I don't know who you are Igor. A foolish man for sure talking about nukes being thrown like that is somehow realistic in this day and age. Europe is not going to roll over for Russia. That is obvious. Get a grip on reality.
